on the diagnosis -- the docket on the defense of marriage act and a portion only recognizes marriage as between a man and a woman and has been challenged dozens of times. they agreed to take up a case dealing with defense of marriage act. two different cases but both going to the same issues. they are different on technical and legal points but the bottom line is the same and the court has told us it will hear two gay marriage cases and we expect the earliest to get on the calendar is march of 2013 so that means we will have a decision like we did with the president's health care law in late june next year. >>shepard: has the supreme court or members given any indication of where they are these days on these matters? >>shannon: when they grant the cases all we know there were four votes behind closed doors from the nine justices and it takes four votes to get the cases on the docket so there are that many who are interested. we thought they might take either of the defense of marriage act or proposition 8 but because they involve differences in the legal issues involved, it looks like they want
on same-sex marriage. the first one about the defensive marriage act. windsor against the united states. they were married in toronto, canada, in 2007. spire died in 2007 in new york at a time when new york recognized same-sex marriages that were performed outside the state. she was required to pay $363,000 on federal estate taxes on her inheritance that she would not have had to pay that opposite marriages get. so, a pretty clean case here and even the obama administration has already said it doesn't think the constitutionality of the defensive marriage act can withstand a legal attack. the second case the court decided to take on is proposition 8, the california ballot initiative adding a state constitutional amendment in 2008 that said only marriage between a man or woman is valid or recognized in california. it overturned a court ruling that said same-sex couples have a right to marry. the cases are likely to be heard in march and decided some time in june. randi? >> joe johns, thank you very much. >>> so, the decisions handed down next year but as jeffrey toobin told anderson coope
to federal and state laws. one case involves the federal defense of marriage act, which denies federal benefits to same sex couples legally married in their own state. the other is a challenge to california's prop 8, which took away the right of same sex marriage that had been previously approved by state courts. >>> florida governor charlie crist completed his political transformation. crist was elected governor as a republican in 2006, then later ran for the senate as an independent. he campaigned for president obama, and spoke at the democratic national convention. he's now officially a democrat and is widely expected to run for governor again in 2014. >>> south africa's beloved nelson mandela is getting tests in a hospital. the country's president says no cause for alarm there. he says the 94-year-old mandela is getting tests consistent with his age. the nobel laureate became his nation's first black president. >>> the fbi wants to talk to a man in custody in egypt. he's a well known islamic extremist. that's why egypt wanted him taken down. but american terrorist watchers think he

nothing, and here's the most important thing. he gets big cuts in defense which he would never get under a negotiated deal of any kind with republicans and democrats. he gets half a trillion dollars in defense cuts. yes, he gets a half a trillion dollars in cuts in domestic programs. they'll be much more than that in any negotiating deal, so this is actually a very good deal for the president to just say i'm putting forth good faith and if you don't do everything i want, then i've got a fall back i can live with. >> here's another thing that he says. maybe you ca can explain this. he's quoted as saying let tax rates on the upper income folks go up and then let's set up a process with a time certain at the end ofhere we will work on tax reform. we'll look at what loopholes, and he goes on. what american is ever going to believe a president or anyone else that later on the government is going to do this? i mean, does he think -- i mean, it's absurd. no american is going to trust that i'm here from the government and here to help you or don't worry, we're going to do this alert. >> it goes
spending cuts. a lot coming out of defense. these are not long-term structural changes that will put us on a path to a balanced budget. that will not happen. melissa: the other thing that struck me about the graphic when you look at it, the threat from republicans hey, we would rather go over the cliff rather than take the president's deal, to me doesn't look terribly credible when you look at actual numbers. unless you take into perspective we're not really going over for 10 years. but it is just going over the cliff is so focused on raising taxes, on absolutely everybody and spending cuts are really not that impressive in terms of getting, you know, the gap down smaller. they say if you compare it to the white house plan they would rather go over the cliff. i'm not sure that is really credible given those numbers. what do you think?. >> way some republicans not all, growing number of republicans are looking at this, assigning blame to the president, making clear this is the president's plan and they don't have anything to do with it is politically more beneficial for them both in the
